  • Busy Builders

Some of the big boys from Ms. Downey’s Class last year visited to show us how to build towers, rockets, bridges and even make letters, numbers and shapes using blocks. Since their visit the boys and girls have been very busy builders.

  • My Family Drawings

Father Richard asked us all to draw a picture of  My Family. Our pictures will be displayed in Gardiner Street Church next August to mark Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland.

  •  Halloween

Ms. Downey decorated the classroom for Halloween. We did lots of Halloween Art in Room 2. We drew ghosts, pumpkins, bats and witches with help from Art for Kids on YouTube. Then we painted pumpkins, bats and witches. We made Lollipop Ghosts, Mandarin Pumpkins and Scary Spiders. We brought them all home in Halloween Art Folders.

  • Ms. O’Mahony Leaving

We are very sad to say goodbye to Ms. O’Mahony. She has helped us so much over the past two months. We will all miss her but we wish her well in her new school.

PostHeaderIcon Halloween Crafts in A6!

5th class in A6 were busy on Tuesday making Halloween crafts with great help from Fionnuala and her team. They decorated some colourful masks and used milk cartons to make spooky faces. Some of the students even donated their crafts to Fionnula to help her decorate the streets for Halloween. Check out their colourful masks!

PostHeaderIcon An Interesting Visitor

It has been an interesting few weeks in Room 6. Lots of people have come to visit us. Today, 26th October, our local community Garda, Andrew, was in the school to talk to our senior students about how to stay safe around Hallowe’en. Room 6 were very lucky that Andrew decided to call down for a visit too.



We sang Andrew some of our Hallowe’en songs. He thought they were really spooky. We have been learning about length and height this month too. We compared Andrew’s height to the height of the shortest and tallest children in our class. We will all need to eat lots of healthy food to grow as tall as Andrew!




Andrew told us all about how he helps to keep us safe in our community. He showed us all the different parts of his special uniform. We spotted some similarities to our uniform. His trousers and tie are similar to ours. He also showed us his walkie-talkie, baton and handcuffs. We even got to hold the handcuffs and try them on. Some of us were a bit afraid of them but others had no problem giving them a go.




A big thank you to Garda Andrew for taking the time to say hello to us and telling us all about his job. We really appreciate all of the work he and his colleagues do to keep us safe in our community.
